ECO's Points
Not so many cities of Europe make such an arousing impression as Dresden does. Dresden is also impartially called “Northern Florence”. Domes, spires and towers of cathedrals and palaces compose the silhouette of the city that is probably one of a kind in Germany. The key to this is the fact, that for the whole XVIII century, Dresden was the capital of European art. Being reconstructed after disastrous air raids during World War II, Dresden is now becoming one of the European cultural centers and lure millions of tourists every year to see its architectural wonders and visit numerous museums of any kind.
